Description
  • To what extent did Alan Turing influence the evolution of modern computing? The 20th Century mathematician is considered by many to be the father of computer science and many would argue that it is largely due to his research that we are able to read this text on a PC, laptop or smart phone. Aside from his contribution to maths and computing however, Turing’s influence impacted on a variety of fields including cryptanalysis and deciphering Nazi codes which helped to end World War 2. This collection examines Turing’s troubled personal life, the significance of his role at Bletchley Park, his ideas on artificial intelligence and finally examines what his legacy should be.<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/science-maths-technology/computing-and-ict/computing/alan-turing-life-and-legacy" /> The iTunes U team.
